If your tabs are Bennett, yes there is. There is a new switch system which includes the tab indicators or there is the add on system which is two vertical rows of LEDs. As the tabs go down the LEDs illuminate downwards. There is also an auto retract system and if you don't have this, you should get it.
Trimtab indicators

Also if they are Bennett you will very soon be able to get a simple connector which will interface with any Lowrance (NMEA2000) plotter or sonar and will give you position sliders as overlay data on any screen.

This will be a much cheaper option if you already have a Lowrance unit and might be worth checking out even if you don't.
